  1. Harvey Weinstein

    Real locker room talk is not tall tales, not outrageous fibs, they are boasting of TRUE exploits. This lends total credibility to Trump's claims about assaulting women sexually on a routine basis. A decade ago Trump was 61 when he was busy forcing himself on "beautiful". Do all his employees sign nondisclosure agreements? A delusional person as Trump does NOT know that his victims DIDN'T want to be grabbed. Donald Trump is a text-book case of Harvey Weinstein.
  2. Trump Effects

    http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-obama-criticism-gold-star-families-2017-10 "...During a press conference on Monday, Trump suggested that Obama did not call Gold Star families when he was president after a reporter asked whether Trump had reached out to the families of those killed in a special forces raid in Niger. "President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn't make calls," Trump added. "I call when it's appropriate." During his administration, Obama faced criticism from the right for taking pains to honor the families of fallen soldiers, as some critics said he didn't have the stomach for war." Most other presidents didn't make calls?! This is insane on the face of it. How can Trump know what "most" presidents did? Later he admitted "someone told him" that Obama didn't make phone calls to gold star families. This is TOO delusional for a president. If something SHOULD be true in HIS mind, that makes it true?! Impeach the scoundrel!
  3. Harvey Weinstein

    When the "sexual-assaulter-in-chief" was asked recently about Weinstein, he said "I'm not surprised." Trump was also asked recently about the Access Hollywood tape by a reporter. Here are some snips of Trump from the famous tape of Trump boasting to Billy Bush about his routine of sexual assault on women: "I moved on her actually. You know she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and f*** her. She was married." "She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.’ I took her out furniture– I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look." "Yeah, that’s her, with the gold. I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. I just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything." "Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything." http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-trump-bush-transcript-20161007-snap-htmlstory.html Trump's reply to the recent question about this tape was "That's just locker room, that's locker room." So that makes it ok? Yeah, "Make America the 1950s Again!"

    Strictly speaking, if you traveled in a "straight" line on Earth, the path would be very slightly curved, not straight. A "straight" line on Earth would be a tangent that lifts off the Earth's surface. But I get it, the model is a 2D representation of 3D space, so the model is imperfect, but meant to convey a deeper meaning, which is totally beyond me.
  5. Trump Effects

    "In an appearance [today, 10-15-17] on CNN’s "State of the Union," Tillerson was asked [again] point blank more than once whether he had insulted the president [by calling him a moron]. The secretary said the line of questioning was part of "the games of Washington" and [again] refused to deny that he had called Trump a "moron." https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politics-news/tillerson-again-refuses-answer-if-he-called-trump-moron-n810806 Jake Tapper: "Is it true, did you call him a moron?" Tillerson: "As I indicated earlier...I'm not going to deal with that kind of petty stuff. I mean this is a town that seems to relish gossip, rumor, innuendo, and they feed on it. They feed on one an other in a very destructive way. I don't work that way. I don't deal that way, and I'm just not going to dignify the question....He and I have a very open and candid relationship. I see him often.....We have a very open exchange of views...." The first part of his reply is the most important message he has to convey about his troubled relationship with Trump. This is almost a hostage video, and Tillerson is trying to tell us what Trump is about, in a way acceptable to Trump "Not going to deal with that kind of petty stuff" = He would rather not be an agent of Trump's pettiness (he would like to get out) "This is a town that relishes gossip rumor, and innuendo, and they feed on it" = Trump creates the situation, through his reality show style, for gossip, rumor, and innuendo, and Trump feeds on the conflict, and therefore Tillerson would like to get out "They feed on one another in a very destructive way" = Trump and the majority of the media feed on one another in a very destructive way. Trump speaks nonsense, and the media reports it, and Trump calls it fake news, over and over again "I don't work that way. I don't deal that way." = I don't work the art of the deal the way Trump does "He and I have a very open and candid relationship" = It is a relationship where I call Trump a "f###### moron and he tells me "f### you" right back "I see him often....We have a very open exchange of views" = I'm sick and tired of seeing that creep, and we yell and cuss at each other all the time.

    If traveling in a straight line, to end up where you started is a curved path. How can a straight line also be curved?
  7. Harvey Weinstein

    Weinstein is only a symptom of a deeper problem, the widespread subjugation of women in society. "Make America Great Again" means to return to a better time, the 1950s and 1960s, when subjugation of women and minorities was more accepted.
  8. Have you ever looked up anything on Wikipedia.org? Just enter "dark matter" and it will give you an overview of dark matter. Enter "dark energy" and it will tell you something about that.

    Space can expand faster than the speed of light. Matter cannot move through space faster than the speed of light.
  10. Mass shooting Las Vegas, Oct. 2. 2017

    Is it good or bad that 3% of the US own 50% of the weapons? Maybe the 3% are experts who are more careful than other, more casual, gun owners of only one or a few guns. It could be worse if that huge number of US guns were evenly spread among the entire population. It would be interesting to know more about the 3%.
  11. Mass shooting Las Vegas, Oct. 2. 2017

    If 3% of the US population own 50% of all the firearms, what is known about this group of people? Are they mostly collectors of ancient artifacts? Or do they stockpile large numbers of modern guns? What is their reason for owning so many guns? Are they experts that buy and sell guns like any commodity? Planning on having a war? Why did Paddock need so many assault rifles in the hotel room, because when fired full-auto the barrel gets too hot so he needs to switch to another gun until the other cools off? If so, all he would need is a few guns, why so many others?
  12. Is the Universe infinite?

    I don't know it. I am speculating using reasoning. There is no other way to discuss it. How can you imagine anything of finite size, with nothing beyond it? Space is not nothing.
  13. Is the Universe infinite?

    What is surrounding the finite volume? Space, and space is not nothing.
  14. Is the Universe infinite?

    Good question! Because it is everything. How can "everything" not be infinite? What about all the space surrounding whatever is finite? Space exists. "[Universe] defined as everything that exists, everything that has existed, and everything that will exist...] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universe
  15. Is the Universe infinite?

    "The Universe is all of space and time (spacetime) and its contents..." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universe How can all of that not be infinite? That is why I used a probable definition. "The Universe can be defined as everything that exists, everything that has existed, and everything that will exist.[21][22][23] According to our current understanding, the Universe consists of spacetime, forms of energy (including electromagnetic radiation and matter), and the physical laws that relate them. The Universe encompasses all of life, all of history, and some philosophers and scientists suggest that it even encompasses ideas such as mathematics and logic.[24][25][26]
